  1. The traffic jam is getting worse whenever it's time for workers to go to the office or to go home from work.
  2. It has more apartments. But, I hope I don't have to live in one. I'm kinda scared. What if there's an earthquake or fire? (yeah, call me old fashion! ;D)
  3. We have more busways. The public transportation is hopefully getting better.
  4. In some areas, it really looks like a metropolitan city.
  5. It has a river that used to be very dirty but now is built to be a way of transportation (still on process).
  6. Every rainy season, flood is almost everywhere.
  7. The inhabitants - day: 12 million, night: 8 million. The 4 million are workers living in suburb area.
  8. This year, the first election for governor was done. Before, the governor was chosen by the central government.
  9. There are lots of restaurants an cafes being built.
  10. Inhabitants from other cities prefer to look for jobs in Jakarta since it has more opportunities.
  11. It was built in the early 17th century (reconstructed and expanded in 1817).
  12. It is a port city.
  13. It might not have a Disneyworld but it has Dufan and SeaWorld! Hahaha!
